The educator plans and implements mini-lessons to model and teach safe, legal, and ethical use of digital information and technology.

With all of this access to information and ability to communicate, collaborate, and share comes the responsibility of conducting one’s online life in an ethical, legal, and safe manner. As an educator, you can and should help guide your students responsibly traverse the digital world.
The first step in creating lessons which model safe, legal, and ethical use of digital information and technology is to understand the various facets of digital citizenship. Then, armed with this information, it becomes possible to share it in a student-friendly format.
Using the resources in both the research and resources sections, explore the nine aspects of digital citizenship. They include:

To earn the micro-credential, you must receive a passing evaluation for Parts 1 and 3, as well as a “Yes” for Part 2.
(400-word limit for each question)
Submit evidence of one mini-lesson you created to prepare students for safe and responsible technology use. The evidence must include at least two additional resource citations used to design the lesson. The evidence can be any of the following (one, not all).
